Same old Bush/Cheney administration tactic: There's a crisis because of your shit administration, then use the urgency of that crisis to try and ram your right wing agenda down everybody's throats. Much has already been said about the 32 word clause buried in the bailout:

"Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."

Today Paulson says we should save the debate for later. But how can you pass the legislation when it includes the above without at least some debate?

We've seen this all before. While Bush himself these days increasingly looks like someone just sitting around and running out the clock, the neocon agenda is alive and well.

UPDATE: Indeed, Cheney's paw prints appear to be all over this thing. Same old shit, different year, except that many GOP lawmakers now are running away from it.

If FB decides to reinstate the account of the former "president" tomorrow, I expect an uptick of activity here for random updates ...
